The 2020 Tennessee Area 52 Al-Anon/Alateen Convention
Cancellation Notice – 2020 Tennessee Area Al-Anon/Alateen Convention
It is with heavy hearts that the 2020 Tennessee Area Convention Planning Committee members announce the decision to cancel the 2020 Tennessee Area Al-Anon/Alateen Convention.
Due to the continued uncertainty caused by the current public health crisis, and the risks and complications associated with Covid-19, the Planning Committee considered several alternatives before reaching the difficult decision to cancel the event currently scheduled for July 31st – August 2nd this year. We feel it is in the best interest of all members of our recovery community (Al-Anon, Alateen and AA) to cancel the Convention and pass the baton to the Middle Tennessee Convention Planning Committee for next year’s Area Convention.
If you have already pre-registered for this year’s Convention, you should hear from our Registration Chairperson in the next few weeks.
The Planning Committee will proceed to wrap up all other activities associated with this year’s Convention, and file our final report with the AWSC prior to the 2020 Fall AWSC, per our Area Guidelines.
The Planning Committee would like to thank you all for your love and continued support, and we hope to see you in Middle Tennessee in 2021.
Watch for local events to support the 2021 Tennessee Area Al-Anon/Alateen Convention, coming to a venue near you as soon as we can gather again!
The Convention starts at 4:00 PM Friday afternoon with registration, meetings, a speaker, and late night entertainment. Saturday has speakers, workshops, a banquet, and the Recovery Repertory Theatre. Sunday finishes up with more meetings, a spiritual speaker and Silent Auction winners announcement. You can attend for a day or the entire weekend. The Convention Program will be posted soon.
